Monster Hunter Stories is an RPG that follows the story of a young rider who leaves his village to explore the world. He eventually gets caught up in the investigation of an ancient legend. The game looks to be quite the departure from the typical Monster Hunter game you’d expect, and it certainly seems like this entry will be a lot more story-focused.
